Harry Potter creator J. K. Rowling has said she has not ruled out another book featuring the exploits of the young wizard.
Rowling was asked while she was a guest at a White House Easter event whether she would write further books. She said she may revisit the characters “maybe ten years from now," but said she had no plans to do so at the moment.
She told one child at the annual Easter Egg Roll that she did love writing.
“Yes, I do, and I am,” Rowling said. “I’m quite sure in the not-too-distant future I will bring out another book.”
She told her young audience she had grown up with neighbours who had the last name Potter, which she liked much more than her own. “As a kid, she said, she was always teased about her last name,” says the Washington Post. “Kids called her names like ‘rolling pin,’ she said.
“Now, Rowling is one of the best-known names in the world.”
The Potter series features seven novels, the first six of which have been turned into movies. The last book was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which was released on July 21, 2007. It broke sales records as the fastest-selling book ever.
A two-part film adaptation (again starring Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter) is in the making for the book, with Part I slated for release in November 2009 and Part II in July 2011. The script for it was delayed because of the 2007–8 Writers’ Guild of America strike.
